Tombstone, Arizona


O our story is set in the dusty mining town of Tombstone, Arizona, and involves the brutal murder of the infamous outlaw Jesse James, who has been ruthlessly shot in the back, whilst taking a bath in his room at the Crystal Palace Hotel.


Jesse and his brother Frank, both of whom carried huge bounties on their heads, had slipped into Tombstone the previous night, in order to play in the celebrated Annual Tombstone Poker Tournament.


This notorious game, run by Poker Alice, always takes place under a shroud of secrecy and is a strictly 'invitation-only' affair. Despite intense public interest, the exclusive guest list always remains a closely-guarded secret until play is just about to start.


However, only an hour before this year's game is due to begin, and shortly after Frank's own appearance causes a stir of excitement amongst the gathering crowd, four loud shots ring out from Jesse's room on the first floor.


Amidst the ensuing chaos, the murderer quickly escapes through the bedroom window, leaving few clues as to their identity. However, once the initial commotion subsides, Frank realizes his brother's killer must be one of the players taking part in that night's game, as they were the only ones who even knew Jesse was in town. With very little to go on, he decides to gamble everything he has, in a high-risk attempt to catch his brother's killer!

T he year is 1882; the American West has yet to be won, and one place engaged in the constant daily struggle is the dusty town of Tombstone, Arizona.


A flourishing mining town, its residents fall into two opposing camps: those looking to get rich quick - prospectors, ranchers and merchants, and those looking to get rich even quicker – thieves, card sharps, and gunmen.


The long arm of the law has so far managed to keep these two conflicting sides far enough apart for the town to prosper, but, with the situation now spiralling dangerously out of control, the town’s future is beginning to look increasingly uncertain.


One thing never in doubt, though, is the notorious annual Tombstone Poker Tournament. Despite intense public speculation, the game’s ‘high-roller’ guest list remains a closely guarded secret from all but the participants, until the game is just about to start. However, an hour before this year’s players are due to appear, the town is stunned by the news that one of them, the outlaw Jesse James, has been ruthlessly gunned down in his room at the Crystal Palace Hotel.

Cowboy Motives - Power, 

Passion, Fame, Cash, Hatred, Revenge, Pride, Love, Ambition


I n amongst the mayhem and madness that ran through Jesse James's wild and shocking life, we find a none to surprising array of motives for murder amongst the other invited guests:


All eventually rear their ugly heads in a night most will wish had never happened.
Each guest should try to unravel the tangled threads running through the evening's rich tapestry, until they finally arrive at the killer's door!
